My friends were across the street the street shooting old storefronts when I saw these shadows on the courthouse steps. I'm glad I wasn't using film, because I must have shot 30 or 40 angles. I love the straight railings and the zigs and zags of the shadow.

Oh, gosh, have to comment on reminds of a blogger that died in a car accident a few years ago...she always took interesting shadow shots. Thanks for bringing her to mind.

Please don't worry about commenting on mine if it makes you jump through hoops. Now I am hearing of others within blogspot having troubles too.
